  • Brief Profile: ~varsity volleyball (4 years)

    Update 8/9/06: Decided to add a couple more reach schools. I am interested in rural med (yep, grew up in rural Idaho) and OB/GYN so I thought Duke and Mayo (both in smaller towns) would be a good fit. Also adding Brown because it sounds like Providence would be a cool place to live.
